I was watching a movie on tv at 1 am. A staff came in and said it was too late for me to be watching tv. I had words with her to which she said nothing and left the room. A few minutes later she came back with two other staff including william dorsey with whom I had an exchange and I turned down the tv, William was satisfied, The three staff left discussing the affair, and I overheard their discussion.
Afterwards I made a few notes, as follows:
2009 07 20 0(a.m.) Be prepared to be summoned to Patrick's (the administrator's) office.
"She dealt with me bluntly so I dealt with her bluntly."
Her complaint: ~"Now I am afraid of him", ~"Do you know how close to my face you were?", ~"I don't want to be in that room with him."
My point was that I deserved respect just because I live here.
Now there are two possible reasons for staff to be afraid of a resident:
0. social deviance
0. There are no posted rules setting hours when the tv can be watched.
On the record:
-- I called her a young lady.
-- I didn't use any profanity.
-- The last thing I said to her was "Do we understand each other?"
Off the record:
-- I am senior to her.
This is a pretty good brick.
